of 20% of iran's call for sanctions, the united states there is a problem that iran to want to negotiate for a position which has changed -- you talk about 20% -- they want sanctions to be lifted with them stopping 20%. the question is they are enriching. we said their right to enrich should be recognized and that would negate all the u.n. sanctions. the nuclear issue stems from u.n. security council issues. within the margins of this issue, there is room to change going forward. i think we may find that it is constrained by the fact that israel is still there. israel is not about to let go of its concerns. i think there has been a lack of dialogue. it would be good if the two sides could sit down together. they could start with this temple and hold discussions and feel of how each side can help each other. my advice for the u.s. diplomats would be to sit with them and say we are not going to talk about the nuclear issue, how is your family. there is the fact of just discussing. on the other side, there is the problem that it is not clear what the endgame is. we're calling on iran to sus
the long-term. despite the bumpy path and the disturbing images, it's in the united states fundamental interest that people have the ability to choose their own governments, that the governments be democratic and free. that's in our long-term best interest. we need to reinforce that. >> we are in the middle of a heated presidential campaign. there are different foreign policy visions. that's why we wanted to dedicate the hour today to understand these different views. mitt romney spoke out this week, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kin
, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kind of chaos that the administration has not been tough enough on radical extremists that are beginning to take root in these countries. how do you respond to that? >> first of all, i think the american people and certainly our diplomats and development experts putting their lives on the line every day around the world expect from our leadership unity in times of challenge. and strong, steady, steadfast leadership of the sort that president obama has been providing. with respect to this, i think,
. >> the united states will not allow iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. we'll do what it takes to prevent that from happening. all options remain on the table. the president has been very clear and that includes the military option. >> shannon: our ambassador to the united nations says the u.s. will stand with israel and do what it takes to stop oran from developing a nuclear weapon, as israeli prime minister netanyahu says iran is 7 to 8 months away from being able to build a nuclear bomb and demands that the united states give a red line to iran. we start with peter doos gee senator john mechanic cane said an hour and-a-half that he thinks the united states is sing exactly the wrong main to the israelis about whether or not we will have their back, if iran gets closer to building a nuclear weapon. >> we keep tells the israelis not to attack, shouldn't we be telling the iranians that that we are with israel and they should back down. >> reporter: the u.s. bamdass dorto the u.n. says that the united states will do whatever it takes to prevent iran from acquiring the nuclear weapon and the
before them, and that's something i think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? >> i think that when he says that implicitly is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. that wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the people, and
is united states gets to meet with whomever they want to meet with. everybody is requesting to meet you. it's a silly argument we didn't get a formal request to meet in new york and we're going miss each other in washington. if you want the to meet with the israelis, you want to meet with the pakistanis you get to meet with them. >> jon: is the media defending the president on this, kirsten? >> it depends on who you talk to. i think the administration is maintaining they didn't get a request. you know, it's i defer to judy on this who told me they didn't but the question has to be raised what exactly is the obama administration supposed to do. are they supposed to agree to go to war with iran. that is conversation that needs to be had but it's a tit-for-tat what are we talking about here. >> i think the subject is pretty clear, joe cline indicated one view, he called netanyahu's statement outrageous and disgusting. there is lot of disgust going around the capitol because he dared to interject himself into american politics. the obama line is going to be and trying to draw news a war. that i
on his relationship with president obama. he also believes israel and the united states can work together to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. >> is israel closer to taking action into its own hands? >> we always reserve the right to act, but i think if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act. >>> meanwhile, the obama administration today pushing back against prime minister netanya netanyahu's statement that iran is even close to making enriched uranium for weapons. >> they're not there yelt. they are not there yet. our assessment is, and we share this regularly with our israeli counterparts in the intelligence and defense community, that there is time and space for the pressure we are mounting, which is unprecedented in terms of sanctions to still yield results. this is not imminent. >>> turning to the campaign trail now. mitt romney had an event scheduled for colorado later today. it was his only campaign event of the weekend. that event canceled after an unrelated incident at pueblo's airport. he
over an anti-muslim film produced in the united states. >>> we could soon learn whether chicago school teachers will be back on the job tomorrow. they are expected to voted to approve a proposed contract deal. union leaders and school officials are trying to finalize that agreement. it would give teachers a raise but require tougher evaluations. teachers walked off the job leaving 350,000 students in limbo. i'm gregg jarrett. now back to fox news watch. we'll see you at the top of the hour on american election headquarters. >>> wait there is still time. i say wait for what? >> wait until when? those international community that refuse to put red lines before iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before islam. >> jon: israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu striking back against the white house and those unwilling to issue an ultimatum to iran. once again, judy miller. monica crowley. jim pinkerton, contributing editor of the american conservative magazine. kirsten powers and richard grenell that served as press spokesman to the last four ambassadors to the u.n. rick to y
not to the united states policy or obviously the administration or the american people. it is in response to a video. a film that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. >> mike: sure, that is all about a video. so, how has this administration handled the crisis? my first guest is on the house intelligence committee. please welcome michelle bachmann. [applause] good to see you and thank you for coming. >> thank you. good to be here with you. [applause] >> mike: congresswoman, the white house is blaming all of this on a movie trailer for a movie that no one has seen and trying to say that all of this violence was stird up because people saw a film. your thoughts, and what we are dealing with is a film? >> it is the excuse but we know what is happening since 2005. the pen muslim countries in the world had a plan for 10 years and want to force all of the rest of the world to be in compliance with their religious law. it is called sharia law and want nonmuslims to follow their laws and what i want people to know. we are not the problem. the problem are the islamics that are demanding we follo
be about a year and that the united states and israel and the world community would know if and when iran makes that turn. another thing they agree on, it can't be just a policy of containing iran, allowing them to go nuclear, but keeping them contained much like the old cold war as the west did with the soviet union. but prime minister netanyahu wants a more forthright stance publicly from the united states in terms of that red line. setting forth, delineating a clear deadline, clear red line of how far iran can or cannot go in developing those nuclear weapons. here's a little bit more of what he told david gregory. >> is israel closer to taking action into its own hands? >> we always reserve the right to act. but i think that if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act. >> he wants more coordination with the united states in taking a stronger stand against iran. meanwhile ambassador rice says iran is growing more isolated under the policies that are now in place absent any military action. >> iran is more isola
by an arlington, va., next. caller: thank you. ron paul needs to abolish the federal reserve or the united states treasury will take over printing money. then the investments would be safe. thank you. host: jeff, republican line, good morning. caller: good morning. as an individual, i have tried to save, realizing that social security was at risk and so forth. i have spoken to people in houston from argentina. frequently. my boss is from argentina. i have to say that if you are unaware of the debt of economic collapse, you really need to find someone who has experienced it. if our credit rating does collapse and we have to pay realistic interest rates, we could not even make the interest on the debt with our taxes, currently. host: jeff, thank you for the call. with the overall debt now in excess of $16 trillion, "the new york times" phrase -- framed it in terms of saving enough. david on the twitter page has this point -- host: shock is on the phone from hawaii, up early on this sunday morning. caller: yes, they have not saved enough. my social security is very minimal. i have been working for m
in jerusalem for us tonight, and rick the prime minister saying he will not wait for the united states to use force against iran and may not wait for the presidential election either. >> right, harris, the prime minister says he's not guided by the american political calendar, but by the the iranian nuclear calendar and he says israel has the right to defend itself against any threat and he says tehran is racing to build an atom bomb and that the u.s. needs to act with more urgency because time is running out and compares iran to the militants attacking u.s. embassies across the middle east, north africa and that iran puts it ahead of survival and suicide bombers, quote, all offer the place and says it will be a grave mistake not to stop that before it's too late. >> and you have the nuclear weapons, and you have countries that have access to nuclear weapons, and always made a careful calculation and cost and benefit, but iran is guided by a leadership that-- with an unbelievable fanaticism. the same fanaticism you see storm the embassy today. >> netanyahu insisting on a deadline for iran or
people especially in the united states are saying no, thest a matter of free expression. the president of one of those groups was on cnn this morning. >> the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it incites imminent lawlessness and i think google is correct that the video in question did not meet that standard. >> google, which owns youtube, constantly having to make subjective decisions about what videos are okay. >> interesting. but this ist over because the white house has been asked to weigh in on this as well. >> the extent was asking youtube to take another look at it and then they said no, we're not going to do it. what you do have all the time, this is what's so fascinating about the way technology is changing the world. there are so many difficult decisions youtube has to face. for example, they say they don't all allow gory vooid, violent video, then you get these videos out of syria that show gore and violence. what we found is a youtube official who gave a talk a few years ago who said there's something they take a look at. to see whether a v
against the united states. i think it is here. and from a pure political point of view, this is an area of strength for president obama that they thought could essentially be put away as there's more after focus on the economy and contrasting president obama with governor romney. now this question of american policy, accusations of american weakness in the middle east, all of those things are in play and here come those presidential debates to really hash all that out. >> and governor romney has challenged the president's leadership in the middle east after the libya attack trying to politicize. has it resonated beyond the republican base? >> well, we don't know yet. we'll test that out over time as we look at polling and as these two debate one another. the reality is that president obama would be perhaps more on the defensive if it were not for governor romney getting so much criticism for his statements this week criticizing the president even before all the facts were known and in the immediate wake of the death of our ambassador in libya, chris stevens. >> the republicans are not b
the united states government had no involvement. >> reporter: experts say the administration must walk a fine line. >> it is a dangerous political dynamic on the ground that's fuelled by the fact that the arab spring has not quickly found a very clear direction. >> reporter: after initially taking hits for politicizing american deaths in libya, mitt romney softened his tone. >> well, this is politics. i'm not going to worry about the campaign. >> reporter: with romney trailing in polls on the question of foreign policy, running mate paul ryan continues to hammer the president. >> amid all these threats and dangers what we do not see is steady, consistent american leadership. >> reporter: today a close ally added more foreign policy pressure. in an interview to air on "meet the press" benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime minister insists mr. obama get tougher with iran over their nuclear program. >> iran is guided by a leadership with an unbelievable fanaticism. it is the same fanaticism you see stormg the ing the embassie today. do you want them to have nuclear weapons? >> reporter: with less
place where anyone would find any, you know, sort of satire or comedy. here in the united states, of course, we know that there are no -- there is nothing sacred. you know well, make fun of all religions and all people and things like that, and so i think, you know, there is a little bit of confliction, and i also think, randi, they might be confusing us with the european union because in many european countries there are laws which criminalize speech. for example, holocaust denial. maybe people think that, you know, there's a double standard in place here where muslim and muslims can be attacked with impunity, but other minority groups are protected. of course, there's a fwraet deal of ignorance there. >> just briefly, what do you say though those that say that muslim is not peaceful, but, many of the, violent in nature and mohammed is a warrior prophet. christian broadcaster pat robertson had this to say, for example. he said muslim is not a religion, but a violent political system. >> well, you know, pat robertson has also gone on record saying he wouldn't allow american hindu
